Arcade: Abyss Odyssey for Xbox 360

Abyss OdysseyContent: Abyss Odyssey

Check price and availability in your Xbox LIVE region

Game Description: From indie Chilean developer ACE Team comes an Art Nouveau-styled, side-scrolling action adventure game featuring a complex fighting engine in procedurally generated levels that destine its three warriors to battle for an eternity. Enter the bold Katrien, the tortured specter Ghost Monk, and the ethereal Pincoya. Perform combos and chain attacks, and release a flurry of blows in order to survive what lies beneath. Your path into the unknown may start out with three fierce warriors, but when you learn to possess your enemies, you can challenge the abyss with their skills and combat abilities. Use these abilities available to you and attempt to figure out the infinite abyss. But the difficulties in accomplishing this great task don’t end there! The side-scrolling levels never play out the same way twice, from the monsters they are filled with, to the locations of life-saving merchants, or the unique encounters and treasures to be found.

    $13.36 in Australia.. who comes up with these prices lol

    • マリオ

      It’s $10.04 in the US. So random.

      • Michael Kelehan

        It’s because it’s a $15 game, but has a launch day discount of 33%. 14.99 – 33% = 10.0433, so it’s $10.04.

        I hope launch day discounts (like Super Meat Boy and now this) happen a lot more in the future.

        • Chris Hofer

          Where is your source that this is a launch day discount?

  • King

    Alrighty,Let’s give this demo a try.

    • マリオ

      Same here.

  • ImTheMetalLord

    I with the old Arcade version of the 360 have a 250GB (the largest you can get for the old white version) hard drive and TWO 32 GB flash drives and in order for me to even demo the game I would need to delete something else. Already over half my digital games I don’t even have possession of. I am going to need to find something else to delete. Something I bought this year in order to even try this game. RIDICULOUS!!!

    • Guest

      Buy one of those 500GB drives on eBay. There are models that fit the old Xbox 360s. They wonrk great!

      • ImTheMetalLord

        And then I won’t be able to play any of my original XBOX games that I bought the digital versions of. Black, Sid Myers Pirates, GTA San Andreas….etc. You have to have a Microsoft official hard drive to play those. And I’m not going to play switch the hard drives to see what games I have on here. Defeats the main reason I buy digital.

        • Death Dealer

          It depends, some drives have the BC partition, some don’t. I’d ask the seller if he knows.
          You’d have no warranty from MS, so you could buy one with BC for the slim and put the drive in the old shell.

          • ImTheMetalLord

            Honestly, I read your post on DOTW thread and it’s all a little confusing to me. That scares me. I’m not as well educated on these things as many are and this keeps people like me only buying official merchandise. I think I’m in the majority as the consumer on this but even if I’m in the minority is sux.

          • Death Dealer

            I’m with you. I’m not someone who usually advocates knock offs, trust me. But we’ve been asking for more storage space since forever and even I caved.

          • GamerResentment

            It’s just likely to be an external, put with the proper ports for the internal, than formatted to a fat32. I have been using mine for almost a year. No problem with it. It’s really more like 450 or 470 though. And it’s only like $60-$70.

          • Not_true

            Stop spamming disqus comments with “sony pauper” fanboy hate, lies, and FUD. You are evil.

        • Peter

          Agreed not gotta swap internal hds like that and risk damaging system or drives

          Ms still needs to get rid of the ridiculous external limit

      • ElektroDragon

        Are there any larger than 320GB drives that can forced into the Slim and let me be on Live with any sort of trouble?

        • Death Dealer

          Yes, 500GB. Some have the BC partition, some don’t. See my post in the DOTW thread.

          • Peter

            500gb for ghose knockoffs why isnt there 1tb or more is my q 500 is syill too small

          • Death Dealer

            Because the knock off hard drive is essentially a clone of a certified one by MS. Hard drives are digitally signed by MS to be able to run on their consoles and there are no certified ones over 500GB. The 500GB certificate leaked a while ago and now everybody is making them, except MS…

  • ImTheMetalLord

    I’m wondering why the word ARCADE at the top of the “box art” has a white background (like the older arcade games) for this game and not the orange background which seems to have become standard.

    • Peter

      Not sure its really standardized. Seen games recently with the older color scheme. Not sure it really matters think its up to the company to decide which they want.

      • Death Dealer

        Could be or it was a game that went into cert ages ago and took all this time to release.

  • Michael Burden

    Anyone else initially read this as Abe’s Odyssey and get excited, only to be let down once you re-read the game title?

    • Liquidfx Xboxdude

      me.

    • Dylan

      The HD remake is coming out next week! Odd ‘n’ Tasty! If it sells well they’ll make a new game in the series.

      Personally I’d love to see another Stranger’s Wrath. That was one of my favorite games on the Original Xbox.

      • Bennijin

        Which then didn’t come to 360 because of an enforced MS size limit and went to PS3 instead, of course.

        • Michael Burden

          It was a LOT more involved than that, but ridiculous all the same.

  • Peter

    Is thiscoming to x1 perchance

    Got burned by not knowing 1001 spikes, etc were not headed to x1 previously

    • yassine db

      1001 Spikes is on Xbox One btw :-)

      • Peter

        Um..I know that already isnt that what I said

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    another unknown title that will fall in the sea of other unknowns. it doesn’t actually look that bad from screenshots though. i might play the demo.

  • Bennijin

    £8.03 lol what. Still too much even after a discount. Had the prices not been jacked up this would have been like £6.50.

  • MURD3R HE WROTE

    seems cool. would like to see this on xbox one.

  • Korahn

    Was excited until I realized I read it wrong as “Abe’s Odyssey.”

  • Sunset

    I just bought this game and it is quite fun. It is a 2d side scrolling rpg lite with lots of replay value. I do recommend playing the trial first. If you like the trial you will love the game. And at only 10.04 (plus tax) U.S. is really a good price.

    • King

      I liked it, Do you get more combos and abilities? I enjoyed them demo,I see you can wash dash,cancel uppercuts into a dash,looks like the combat could have a lot of depth, but the trial was very shallow.

      • GamerResentment

        No. It’s not as complex as they make it seem. What your attacks were is what they are. You get more specials but that’s it. Each enemy you capture has slightly different moves though. I bought it and kinda like it but it isn’t anything great. Just good.

        • King

          Oh wow, That’s a little off-putting. I think I may wait a bit before purchase then,maybe It’ll be on sale in a bit, Thanks for the reply.

          • GamerResentment

            Not a problem. I don’t regret it but others might. It’s not that hard either. Beat the warlock twice already. Ice fish are cheap. That’s about it. You’ll struggle a little but not on the hard scale of Spelunky

  • King

    I found this pretty interesting, The trial was just too short,seemingly nice soundtrack and the still images had some nice art.

  • Sunset

    And I just heard that Microsoft CEO Satya N has laid off 18,000 employees from Xbox’s entertainment division. This is breaking news so it may not be 100% correct. But it wouldn’t surprise anyone if it was true.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Most of the lay offs are from the Nokia division that they just purchase. Normal and expected since MS will not be making Nokia phones that are android base. Plus wall street seems to think that MS is bloated and has twice as many employee’s than are needed. And not all of them will lose their jobs some will just be moved to other positions.

  • InfernoShade

    This looks pretty cool. And it has co-op which is a big seller in my house.

  • ImTheMetalLord

    This game has been reduced to $9.99 in the US. It was at a strange price point before but I also noticed last night it was on the console’s sales dashboard. The same place you see the Doom etc. sales.

    I know someone said it was a just released sale so if you are thinking about it you might want to pick it up sooner rather than later. I personally thought it was cool but it didn’t have anything spectacular to make me have to have it right away.

    • GamerResentment

      I bought it because I figured why not. It looks nice and will keep me entertained when I’m bored. It is rather meh though. Not really a complex fighting engine. Beat the warlock twice already. It isn’t that hard :/

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Well then I’m glad I decided against buying this and picked up Magic 2015 instead. The last one I bought was in 2010 the first year it came out on the 360 and I didn’t know anything about the game at all and liked it. I’ve been really enjoying playing the 2015 version a lot. Thanks for the info on this game. I’ll just wait till its free if ever at all.

    Already had this on pre-order for PC… but due to the sale at launch, and the fact I like the developer and LOVE the art style of this game… I also bought it on Xbox 360 & PS3! Triple dipping day one!
